Carrie and Sara's South American Adventure!
Organized by: Carrie Schultz
Hi! Our names are Carrie and Sara, and in just a couple months we'll be leaving for a six month trip around South America! Before we graduated High School we both realized that there is so much we want to do with our lives. Neither of us were ready to pick one thing, go to college, and spend the rest of our lives doing that; there is so much to learn, explore, and experience before making that decision. So, we deferred acceptance to college and started planning this trip. Our itinerary includes volunteering at an orphanage in Peru, hiking the Salkantay trail to Machu Picchu, camping in Patagonia, working on organic farms, and much, much more! Unfortunately, this amazing opportunity comes with a price tag. We're hoping to use the funds we raise to help cover transportation costs, the cost of visas, and other expenses that come up. In return, we're both planning on keeping blogs so that contributors can see what we've been doing with their donations! There may even be the occasional post card! Please don't feel obligated to make a monetary contribution. You could always help by spreading the word and sharing the fundraiser with others. The blogs will be available to anyone and everyone who is interested in reading them.
